Are The Monsters Really Monsters?
After writing a status on my Facebook Common Chaos Chronicle Page about the over night dilemma of our kids getting up and destroying the house, I got to thinking….
It crossed my mind that I may actually be painting these children as the work of the devil.
Now I am not one of these mums that will sit here and swear till I’m blue in the face that I have perfect children.
Uh uh, not me.
I dont believe any of us are ‘PERFECT’, myself included, but I did all of a sudden feel the need to clear this up.
I call my kids the MonsterSquad in a light hearted joking manner. Like all kids they have their MONSTER moments.
Now when they have a monster moment I like to share it.
Why? Because if I don’t just vent it out some days, I could possibly lose my mind.
I like to share it because I am always interested in other peoples advice and opinions.
There may be something I hadn’t thought of, something we haven’t tried yet.
No matter what, I feel like it’s worth putting it out there to see what you all have to say.
I think it also shows what living in a large family in today’s society is really like too.
My children can be Monsters, but on a whole, they’re really quite well adjusted little people.
They are bright, somewhat well mannered, caring and friendly.
If we could sort this sleeping business out we’d be set.
I am certain there are answers out there for us, as I am certain we are not the only people dealing with this issue. I am just not afraid to put it out there and ask for help.
I do love my monsters, even when I am sleep deprived, cranky and desperate for a nap!!!
